Nayeem is not there instead Aftab made it.

Though Aftab thinks he should practice more and come back again to the national team, but the selectors thinks otherwise. The player is not confident but the selectors are :)

Yeah, not only Aftab, Junaid also made it with his poor form.
Only reason can be, selectors are tagging Nayeem as a ODI specialist which is totally wrong.

Yeah, obviously the combination should be this - with 3 SLA.

The believe that the selectors are showing towards Aftab, I will not be surprised if he makes the first XI instead of Junaid.

March 9, 2010, 02:38 AM
14 man squad, so for the final XI 2 players will be dropped

the probabilities are.....

1. one pacer from the 3
2. one SLA from razzaq and enamul
3. one batsman from aftab, junaed, naeem, imrul

I'd play all 3 pacers, and both spinners.

March 9, 2010, 02:40 AM
The team will get worse if management decides to go with 2 SLA and play both Aftab and Junaid. It will be a negative approach and can cost us.

Leave out Shahadat/Rubel and Aftab/Junaid from the final XI.

March 9, 2010, 02:42 AM
stupid selection with inclusion of Aftab and Razzak and Enamul. Why not Shuruwardi Shuvo? I am sure Shuvo would do better than Enamul and Razzak in the test. Razzak cannot take wickets in the tests and Enamul cannot take wickets in NCL. If not Shuvo, give a chance to someone else who is doing well in domestic cricket. What about Naeem? Give him some chances to play test. He may be a part time bowler, but he is a full time proven batsman. He is way better batsman than both Aftab and Imrul together. I don't like the inlcusion of Imrul with his first class record. Total stupid selection by bone heads.

Why the hell they have selected 4 spinner's and 3 fast bowlers, they have filled the team with bowlers instead of batsman. They could have accommodated Naeem and Ashraful instead of Enamul and Rubel considering the fact that BD wicket's are spinner friendly and can have SAKIB,RAZZAQ,NAEEM,MAHMOUDULLAH all four at a time in the first match. This Riafiq the selector if I am not mistaken is the same guy who used to be friendly with Saad in the 80's and they both played for different team but never had good cricketing brain particularly Rafiq and still it shows.

Someone has to teach KP how to score runs against SLAs, why not an off-form player like Enam?

Enam prob should be left out along with Rubel. Aftab should stay if he thinks he can handle it. Scoring 46 without even believing yourself is not bad. Junaed scored a fifty (and was in a massive opening partnership) in the last home series.Then again, its two out of form/confidence players in Aftab and Junaed, plus a batsman lacking in technique with lots of courage ( Raqibul).

according to cricinfo, 14 man squad named and that includes NAEEM

March 9, 2010, 03:34 AM
Bangladesh's most-capped cricketer, Mohammad Ashraful, has been omitted from the Test squad for the forthcoming series against England, after failing to convince the selectors that he is in the right frame of mind to resume his international career.

Ashraful, 25, missed last week's ODI series in a bid to recapture his form following a poor tour of New Zealand, but in consecutive first-class matches for Dhaka Division, he made 21 runs in four innings, including three ducks.

His final chance to impress the selectors came during his captaincy stint for Bangladesh A against England at Chittagong, but having managed just 1 in the first innings, he was bowled by Amjal Shahzad for 30 on the third and final morning of the match.

Ashraful has played in 53 of Bangladesh's 64 Tests to date, having made his mark with a debut century against Sri Lanka in November 2001, when he was just 16 years old. However, he has never yet featured in a home Test against England, having been dropped for the 2003 series, again due to a loss of form.

The Bangladesh selectors have named a 14-man squad which includes the centurion from the warm-up match, Raqibul Hasan, as well as no fewer than three left-arm spinners - the captain Shakib Al Hasan, Abdur Razzak and Enamul Haque Jr - in response to Kevin Pietersen's much-publicised problems against that style of bowling.

Ironically, Pietersen fell to Ashraful's legspin for 20 on the final afternoon of the tour match.

Bangladesh squad Shakib Al Hasan (capt), Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), Tamim Iqbal, Imrul Kayes, Junaid Siddique, Aftab Ahmed, Mahmudullah, Raqibul Hasan, Naeem Islam, Rubel Hossain, Shafiul Islam, Abdur Razzak, Enamul Haque Jr, Shahadat Hossain.

I thought Suhrawardi Shuvo would be tested as spinner and a lower order batasman (ahead of Razzak). Anyway, let's hope for a Bangladesh win.

Equinox
March 9, 2010, 07:30 AM
Good decision Shuvo is not a wicket-taking bowler. He should stick to ODIs for now.

Mahmudullah

Naeem
Razzak
Shahadat
Shafiul

12th man: Imrul

rlly think that shuvo shud have been played instead of enamul - shuvo is easily as gud as enamul but shuvo has some batting capabilities - enamul is completely useless with the bat.

March 9, 2010, 09:24 AM
Good squad in my opinion..ash needed a break for his own good..need him 2 relax and just freshen his mind..abdur razzak being there tho? I would much rather try shvu then razzak..razzaks bowling style is threatening in odiss but not tests..shuvo didnt look a wickettaker in odi's but in tests he might be..FC is where he mainly gets his success..the players on the hot seat are roqibul, imrul, zunaed and aftab..roqibul did good in the practice match but still needs 2 prove himself in the test arena as his average is very poor..im confident in him tho..imrul has been good in odi's but pathetic in tests..he really needs 2 start converting his 20's and 30's 2 bigger scores or else he's gone..zunaed i think has the best success out of these 4 but still his average needs 2 go up..big tour 4 him..last chance for aftab in tests..if he struggles then he should be outta the team..scored a 46 in the last odi so hopefully he can carry that in2 tests..they are definitely just going 2 play 2 pacers..shahadat and rubel are probably going 2 get picked while shafiul will miss out in my opinion..i really hope naeem gets selected but i doubt he will be 4 the 1st test..maybe the 2nd 1 tho..anyways i really hope we deliver a good performance with this group..

March 9, 2010, 09:26 AM
I haven't seen anything great from Nayeem. Frankly, his bowling is very poor and his place may be at stake in ODI and 20/20. We need a specialist top order batsman. Nayeem was nowhere near when Aftab/Janed in form. But, I also belive JS and Aftab shouldn't be there. One key point is Aftab/JS/Ash all are top order batsman. That's why Ashraful's failure made it more difficult.

So, I would drop all JS/Nayeem and Aftab and bring someone new from A team or NCL and keep one of the Aftab or JS. because, I do not want too many debutants.

BB, I hope your analysis is correct.

- Thats means only one potential dead wood will fight for #3 dead wood slot. Thats good news.

- With Sakib in hand, most likely out of two mediocre specialized spinners in Razzak and Enamul: hopefully only one will be selected. Thats may open up a slot for Naeem. This is a good news for me.

- Either Rubel or Shahadat will be selected. That means NO "three specialized FB" in the team. That's good based on current pitch that we are playing.

Therefore I hope you are right.... Tomar mukhe phul chondon poruk

The rest three will have two pacers and a spinner.

Knowing our management, they will play Junaid and Aftab in the same team. I'm disappointed they've left out Shuvo. He's a wickettaking machine. I would've been confident he would take more wickets then Razzak/Enamul and he can chip in with the bat as well. He averages 40+ in the NCL.

Enamul Jr.


MahmudUllah can be more than a handy test bowler at times. Shakib + in form jr. should be more than enough to trouble them. Two pacers just in case... plus 8 batsmen. Role of AFtab: just get some quick runs on the board...I really don't see him as a #3.

Naeem's off-spin can be handy too!

[বাংলা]‘এখনো খুশি হতে পারছি না’

ভারতের বিপক্ষে টেস্ট সিরিজের স্কোয়াডে থাকলেও খেলা হয়নি কোনো ম্যাচ। নিউজিল্যান্ড সফরে তো দলেই ছিলেন না। ইংল্যান্ডের বিপক্ষে দুই টেস্ট সিরিজের বাংলাদেশ দলে জায়গা পেয়েও এনামুল হক জুনিয়র তাই এখনই খুশি হতে পারছেন না

ভারতের বিপক্ষে দলে থেকেও খেলা হয়নি। মাঝে নিউজিল্যান্ড সফরে দলেই ছিলেন না। এখন আবার দলে ফিরে নিশ্চয়ই খুশি...
এনামুল হক জুনিয়র: আসলে আমি এখনো পুরো খুশি হতে পারছি না। আমি ম্যাচ খেলতে চাই। শুধু স্কোয়াডে সুযোগ পাওয়ার চেয়ে ম্যাচ খেলাটাই আমার কাছে গুরুত্বপূর্ণ। যখন ম্যাচ খেলব, তখনই বুঝতে পারব যে আমি আসলে দলে আছি।

খেলার সুযোগ পাবেন না, এ রকম অনিশ্চয়তা কেন আসছে মনে?
এনামুল: আত্মবিশ্বাসটা আসলে নিজেই হারিয়ে ফেলেছি। ওয়েস্ট ইন্ডিজ আর জিম্বাবুয়ের বিপক্ষে ভালো খেলার পরও আমি আর সুযোগ পাইনি। বিশ্বাস ছিল, ইংল্যান্ডের বিপক্ষে ওয়ানডেতে হয়তো খেলার সুযোগ পাব। কারণ স্পিনে ইংল্যান্ডের সমস্যা আছে। তো ওয়ানডেতে যখন সুযোগ হয়নি, টেস্টের ব্যাপারেও অতটা আত্মবিশ্বাসী ছিলাম না যে দলে থাকব।

মোহাম্মদ রফিক অবসরে যাওয়ার পর মনে হচ্ছিল বাংলাদেশের স্পিন আক্রমণের নেতৃত্ব আপনার হাতেই থাকবে। তার পরও এই ছন্দপতনের কারণ কী বলে মনে হয়?
এনামুল: আমার মনে হয় এতে আমার কোনো ভূমিকা নেই। আমিই যে পিছিয়ে গেছি সে রকম কিছু না। আমি আসলে সুযোগই পাইনি সে রকম। ওয়েস্ট ইন্ডিজে একটা টেস্ট ম্যাচ খেলে দুই ইনিংসে ৩টা করে ৬টা উইকেট পেয়েছি। তারপর আর কোনো ম্যাচই খেলিনি। ওয়ানডেতেও যে কয়টা ম্যাচ খেলেছি ভালো করার চেষ্টা করেছি।

আপনার না খেলার কারণ হিসেবে টিম কম্বিনেশনের কথা বলা হয়। অলরাউন্ডারদের প্রাধান্য দেওয়া হয়। আপনারও কি মনে হয়, টিম কম্বিনেশনে আসেন না বলেই আপনার খেলা হয় না?
এনামুল: কম্বিনেশন করে যদি সে রকম ফলাফল আসে, তাহলে তো কোনো কথা নেই। তবে ঘটনা হলো, গত কিছু দিনে আমি যে কয়টা ওয়ানডে খেলেছি, তাতে কিন্তু আমরা হারিনি। কম্বিনেশনে যদি ভালো কোনো ফল আসে, তাহলে আমি মানতে রাজি আছি। কিন্তু কম্বিনেশনে ভালো কিছু না এলে তো মনে হয় আমি খেলার সুযোগ প্রত্যাশা করতে পারি।

দলে ভালো স্পিনারের সংখ্যা বেড়েছে, এটাও কি একটা কারণ হতে পারে আপনার নিয়মিত খেলতে না পারার?
এনামুল: ভালো স্পিনার বলতে আসলে আমি সাকিবকেই বুঝি। সাকিব একা খেললেই যদি কাজ হয়ে যায়, তাহলে তো আর কিছু বলার নেই। কিন্তু সাকিবের সঙ্গে যদি আর কারও প্রয়োজন হয়, আমার তো মনে হয় সে ক্ষেত্রে আমার অন্তত টেস্টে সুযোগ পাওয়া উচিত।

দল তো এখন বিশেষজ্ঞ স্পিনারদের কাছেও ব্যাটিং চায়। সেদিক দিয়ে নিজেকে কীভাবে মূল্যায়ন করবেন?
এনামুল: ওয়ানডেতে সেটা একটা কারণ হতে পারে। আমি নিজেও এখন সেটা বুঝতে পারছি এবং ব্যাটিং নিয়ে যথেষ্ট কাজ করছি।

এই সিরিজে খেলার সুযোগ পেলে ভালো করার ব্যাপারে কতটা আত্মবিশ্বাসী?
এনামুল: আত্মবিশ্বাসী...তবে কথা বলার চেয়ে আমি মাঠে কিছু করে দেখানোতেই বিশ্বাসী। ওরা স্পিনে দুর্বল হতে পারে, তবে আমাদেরও ঠিক জায়গায় বল ফেলতে হবে, উইকেট নিতে হবে।[/বাংলা]

[বাংলা]তিনি আর সাকিব আল হাসান ও আবদুর রাজ্জাক মিলিয়ে তিনজন বিশেষজ্ঞ বাঁহাতি স্পিনার দলে থাকায় এনামুলের খেলাটা নিশ্চিত নয় এবারও। রফিকুলই বলেছেন, ‘কন্ডিশন, ইংল্যান্ড এবং আমাদের শক্তিমত্তা-দুর্বলতা চিন্তা করেই দল করা হয়েছে। দলের মূল স্পিনার সাকিব তো অলরাউন্ডারই। এনামুল বা রাজ্জাকের একজন থাকবে ব্যাকআপ হিসেবে। তাদের মধ্যে কে খেলবে সেটা আগামী দুই দিন প্র্যাকটিস করার পর বোঝা যাবে।’

নিউজিল্যান্ডের বিপক্ষে টেস্টে ভালো কিছু করতে না পারলেও ইংল্যান্ডের বিপক্ষে শেষ ওয়ানডেতে নিজেকে ফিরে পাওয়ার সম্ভাবনা দেখিয়ে দলে আছেন আফতাব আহমেদও। তার ওপর আস্থা রাখার কারণ ব্যাখ্যা করে প্রধান নির্বাচক বলেছেন, ‘এই পর্যায়ের ক্রিকেটের সঙ্গে আবার মানিয়ে নিতে শুরু করেছে আফতাব। এই সিরিজের শেষ ওয়ানডেতে সে ভালো খেলেছে। প্র্যাকটিসেও কঠোর পরিশ্রম করছে, চেষ্টা করছে ভালো করার। আফতাব আগে যে মানের ক্রিকেটার ছিল এখন সেটার অনেকটাই কাছাকাছি।’ টেস্ট খেলতে এখন পুরোপুরি প্রস্তুত—নির্বাচ দের এই বিবেচনায় দলে আছেন এখন পর্যন্ত নিউজিল্যান্ড এবং দক্ষিণ আফ্রিকার বিপক্ষে দুটি টেস্ট খেলা নাঈম ইসলামও।[/বাংলা]

Na rey bhai you are not that lucky. I have studied management. :)
So they will put together the following: Top 8: TI, IK, JS, AA, RH, SH, MR, MR. #2, #3 can be switched as well.

The rest three will have two pacers and a spinner.

yeah that's what I also fear. We always have some creative thinking management in power. Although I feared worse that MA will be included.;)

but... but .....Bagh Mama thougt if Ash take a break, he may further break himself.... what will happen now? How they are going to fix further broken Ashraful? "Uhu" deyee jora lagano jabe to?

Lol..funny fazal bhai..well you and me know that ash needs a break bad and hope bcb lets him have a break 4 a while..his situation is not like rokibul where he had a temporary poor form..ash has been the 2nd worst batsman on the team just ahead zunaed..and if bagh mama thinks that then hes getting it all wrong..not playing international cricket will let ash regroup his thoughts which he badly needs now..ash is no baby and we just spoiled the guy way 2 much..giving him countless chances even though he rarely delivers good performances..dont wanna hear that bs that once he gets dropped then he will become more broke..if ash really wants 2 and if he really is a strong person then he will perform well and make sure he will come back strong..which i really really hope he does but we just have 2 wait and see..

I dunno what happens to our 'once very talented' players after they gets married. I think board should, at least, tells the fact to the young cricketers to first cement their place and gain experience and then get married or encourage them for 'khashi kora' (certain cows can be really strong, if you remove their b..ls) for the greater good of BD test cricket.

I can give so many examples like SN, Aftab, Nafees Iqbal..

Etto gula batsmen nilo but Faisal re chance dilo na. Pola tar jonno kharap lagtese. Junaid or Aftab er jaigai dite parto chance easily.

After all, Faisal is the leading run scorer of NCL for 2 consecutive season. He is in form.

reckon it would have been worth including shuvo over enam but what you gonna do? jahurul probably would have been a decent pick alos, could bat at 2 or 3.

March 9, 2010, 08:49 PM
In the last series we had 3 weakest link. Imrul, then Zunaed, and then Aftab. hopefully in this series we will only see one of them, and my vote goes to Imrul. As soon as Zunaed and Aftab gets dropped someone from the lower middle order will come up the order, preferably Riyad, assuming Rakib will come in at number 4. follow by mushy, shakib, and nayeem. I wouldn't mind seeing nayeem come up the order even before shakib. that would be a balanced batting line up. and we can actually expect some partnerships.

Yes, there are some alternative selections that can be made.

-If Shuvo was selected, then without doubt we could have gone with 3 SLA, as Shuvo is able to score as much as Junaid or Aftab probably score. But problem is it would be his debut match and selectors went for the experience. Touch and go, but I would have picked Shuvo and played one of Razzak/Enam. It would be a blend of inform and experience SLA then.

- Faisal is another name. He is the leading scorer for 2 consecutive NCL. It is difficult to decide whether to pick him or not. But when you see out of confidence (Aftab), out of form (Junaid) is making the squad, then you get tempted to give the experienced and inform Faisal a go. The decision actually can go either way and selectors decided not to take chances.

March 9, 2010, 08:55 PM
yeah faisal is tempting but having not seen him play i can only go on stats and what i read and the way some people talk about his technique puts major doubts in my mind despite his stats and form. as for the spin attack i'd have brought in shuvo and played razzak over enam. i really hope naeem is in the XI though, even if he bats at no. 3.

I do not see both Junaid and Aftab playing in XI. So, that opens a spot for Nayeem.
But knowing our selectors, there is no guarantee. They are full of surprises :)

If some one says Faisal is crap, then our bowlers like subhasis, Rasel, talha, saqlain, shuvo, who ever bowls against him are crappiest

except for aftab its a great selection...

people have to remember that it was Junaed siddiq, who helped tamim to 151 and had a massive partnership against India in last home test series, he himself getting 50+

Tamim Iqbal
Imrul kayes
Junaed Siddiqi

March 10, 2010, 09:17 AM
reading jimmie's intervieuw in ci.. it seems he will play razzaq and enamul both...

so the probable line up will be

tamim
imrul
junaed
mushfiq
shakib
aftab
mahmudullah
razzaq
rubel
shafiul
enamul

personnaly i prefer 2 specialist sla, and let naem play so we hae 8 batsmen in the team.. considering thats our weakest point

March 10, 2010, 09:09 PM
So, Jahurul Islam is given the chance in place of Raqibul.
Still Faisal is ignored.

March 10, 2010, 11:22 PM
Why is Aftab getting a call before Naeem. Naeem is playing good and also it seems like he can hold on to his wicket when sloging is not required. Since Rokibul is gone because of his rash decision for no reason at all, we need more players who can keep their wicket in hand ...

But he was a friend of Bagh Mama, Ta to jantam na?


Folks frpom now on send all selection related criticism to Saad bhai. he will send it to bagh Mama.
This Saad was a genuine fast bowler back in the 70s and the 80s. Played for Victoria, Wari and Azad Boys. He also was represented Bangladesh.

What about Naeem? Could s'body let me know his TEST statistics? No doubt Naeem is a good player but in my humble opinion he is not consistent performer with the bat or with the ball.

reasonable squad.... .... ....

#raj or enamul..... not too much between them. anyway raj knows if he does not perform enamul will be playing next game replacing him.

#rubel or shafiul..... the pacers will get very little to bowl . and for short burst rubel can be effective as a wicket taker or unsettling batsmen better than shafiul. and like enam he will keep both the pacers on their toes as both of them know shafiul may replace anyone of them in the 2nd match.

#jahurul : just wait one match, either imrul,junaed or aftab will ensure ur debut in the 2nd test

I dun get why everyone is against Aftab in terms of playing test and ODI. Look at his last test. He returned to national cricket after soo long and scored 33 of 56 with a strike rate of 58.92 which is perfect for tests. on the second innings he only socred 8 but played 37 bowls and and got run out unfortunately. He also did well on the last ODI against England. I happy that he is in. He is experienced which is something Bangladesh team he lacking right now.

The key to this match is definitely our bowlers no doubt. But Roqibul performed horrible on his last tests. So i dun see the difference. Junaed will score like 30 runs and than he will return. His performance is soo predictable

Totally. And if they can bat out more than 2 sessions.. thats a bonus. I am especially curious on the Imrul/Zunaed pair when they are most likely to edge the ball to slips or get out looking clueless whilst Aftab will go for slog shot or off-stump hoick. I desperately want to be proved wrong!!

After watching today's play it would be interesting to see how the management would justify the team and the decision. Taking Razzak in the test team is a big mistake. He is a very good ODI bowler but not suited for the longer version. Rubel is still very raw and lacks temperament.

Batting is yet to come. But I suspect Aftab and Junaid would fail to justify his selection. Hope they would prove me wrong.

yaseer
March 12, 2010, 06:20 AM
When Test match starts with a stupid decision of bowling first, then it is difficult to judge the performance of bowlers, specially spinners and here the player is Razzak. We can label him permanently as a ODI bowler from now on and never consider him for tests. Then question comes, what other spinners did (read Sakib) in this 1st day pitch?

No doubt that.
Bunch of moron selectors.
